I think Amazon will do ok with this. If they can make the interface light and nimble it doesn’t really matter what limitations the revision 1 device has compared to the iPad. Although not so well established in international markets, their ecosystem is probably integrated well enough to establish a user base in the US. The primary failure of android tablets has been the inability to compete with the iPad on price. $250 is a lot more gift-able than $500 so this entry...
Ireland - surely the higher version number will be reserved for the high end model, no? The more similar the next iPhone looks to the existing model the more Apple needs marketing to differentiate it. Calling its spiritual successor an “iPhone 4S” can only detract from its desirability. “iPhone 5 with iOS 5” has state of the art written all over it. The “3GS” was a unique situation because they called the 2nd generation iPhone “3G”. They couldn’t very well call its...
Does anyone else think we are interpreting this information the wrong way? This "new" design is clearly an evolution of the iPod touch. It makes no sense for Apple, after 4 years, to suddenly turn around and argue that and iPod-touch-like design is a premium device and the iPhone 4 design is now the low end consumer device? If the 8 megapixel camera module is the same thickness as the 5 megapixel module in the iphone 4, this suggests that the phone can't become any...
Amazon are one of the few that have enough of an ecosystem to pull off something approximating the iPad/iTunes experience. I thought coverflow was a patented interface element though. I distinctly remember Apple buying out the developer before they integrated it into iTunes.
I’m glad Apple et al are taking a stand. I’m not interested in managing a personal information economy. I can’t be the only person to think it’s unfair when software developers to demand personal information as payment when it is clearly not necessary to deliver the service. Sure you can exercise your right not to sign up to such a service, but inevitably enough sheeple will sign up, making the business model viable and creating a barrier to other companies from...
Introducing the new iPod shuffle: The Internet. In your ear.
Because in "feeling for" a capacitive button you have already pressed it (even if this was not your intention). A physical button allows a user to differentiate between locating and activating.Imagine how annoying it would be to use a mouse that didn’t have any physical buttons and activated everything the cursor inadvertently moved over.
While I’m far from an expert on the subject I’ve read a little about designing/structuring spaces to enhance particular ways humans interact with the environment. The comment that this campus is not well integrated within the rest of the city is a valid point, but in all fairness which company really does that with their HQ now that secrecy is paramount to maintaining a competitive advantage? The design is not bad it’s just emphasising internal rather than external...
Sigh...
I think you get more than just “that Apple logo”.Windows and Mac OS X are poles apart in terms of usability, aesthetics, software integration, etc.What represents “value for money” probably depends on whether the consumer views the product as a means to an end or whether they value the experience of using the product as a whole (in which case they are most definitely not "the same thing").
